Submarine owner arrested over missing journalist

Danish submarine owner arrested over journalist's death

A Danish inventor was detained Saturday in the death of a female journalist who was believed killed when a submarine he built almost a decade ago sank.

A judge is set to decide if the owner of an amateur-built submarine should be held in custody during an investigation into whether he is responsible for the disappearance of a Swedish woman who had been onboard his submarine that sank off Denmark's east coast.

Madsen had wanted to launch himself into the space race before building his submarine the Nautilus, the biggest privately-made one ever when he made it in 2008.

Police are hunting for witnesses and camera footage to determine whether the missing woman had disembarked after setting off. "But I guess that was pretty good, because I otherwise still would have been down there".

"Whether the woman was on board the submarine at the time of her disappearance is unclear", police said.

Copenhagen police said they've located the sunken submarine, but it will have to be airlifted to land before they can enter.

Authorities are reportedly in the process of salvaging the submarine.

Wall is a 30-year-old freelance journalist whose work appeared in major outlets all over the world, including the New York Times, Harper's Magazine, and Foreign Policy (she's also done reporting for Mashable that was never published for reasons unrelated to the quality of substance of her work).

Nautilus, named after the ship from the classic science fiction novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, was built by Mr Madsen after raising $200,000 (£154,000) online. "They were the only two on board [on Thursday]".

The Navy said the sub was seen sailing, but then sank shortly afterwards.

According to the Copenhagen Post, a search of the vessel is likely to be carried out once it has been towed to port later on Saturday.

Madsen describes himself as an "inventrepaneur" on the website for his Copenhagen-based company.

"The undersea world is close, it's lovely, always just around the corner in Denmark".

Two helicopters and three ships scoured the Baltic Sea waters between Copenhagen and the island of Bornholm.

A salvage vessel raised the submarine today, which was seven meters (23 feet) under water off Copenhagen's south island of Dragoer.

"A radio contact was established for the boat, which, according to the owner, was heading towards the harbour", police said.

Madsen "told us he had technical problems" when asked to explain why the submarine failed to respond to radio contact earlier in the day, Damgaard said.
